Wood Accent Wall

Project by averagejoe posted 03-28-2013 02:53 PM 31898 views 8 times favorited 16 comments Add to Favorites Watch

We have been finishing our basement over the past 4 months now (many projects to add) and some of the finishing touches are coming together. This particular project was quite simple but I feel the impact has been impressive.
We wanted barn siding to give us a rustic look. Tracking down and pricing out barn siding proved to be challenging and over priced for our pallet. This wall with barn siding would’ve been $450 however, my wife and I did this for free. Well, $10 actually which went toward the donating companies pizza fund.
The wall is covered horizontally with pallet wood. I picked up 10 standard size pallets, dissembled them with a reciprocating saw and basically slapped them on the wall. A little glue, a finish nailer and its done.
Our wall is rougher, some may want to power wash and sand the pallet boards to give it a more smooth or polished look.

I like this a lot – I’ve also seen it done on some HGTV show. I do like all the different tones of wood and I’m all for recycling pallets. Personally, everything I do lately has a “driftwood” or weathered wood appearance so I would either weather it with baking soda or driftwood weathered wood finish depending on if I wanted a brown tone or weathered gray – for me it would need to be gray to match everything I’ve been doing lately. But it does inspire me to try this.
